    No sé si sea que me este poniendo viejo.. Pero tengo un tiempo ya escuchando Bandas de Rock Sinfonico, en especial las muy buenas Bandas Españolas como Dark Moor... Aunque, no abando el genero de mis amores el Thrash, reconozco la tremenda calidad que existe en este genero... Eso si, jamás, me he dejado etiquetar y mucho menos pienso que los generos musicales fuera del thrash no sirven o no son de "rockeros" de verdad !!!! ... Sandeces, solo los chavales piensan de esa manera.

    This was quite a big thing in late '90 and early '00, but now is there too much of this stuff. To be sure listening to Nightwish, Epica, After Forever, Haggard still can be pleasant. But sometimes I listen to a lot of new bands that are good, but the music is all the same. What i think is that if you want to make this kind of music you have to try doing something original, creative, new. Otherwise is all the same music over and over again

    I am a die hard metal fan, maybe I am getting old, listened to symphonic metal the other day,now I am hooked. I mentioned this after reading DrDarkoDarlin comment. I find if you don't want to listen to ancient metal bands (Metalica excluded) then symphonic metal groups rule.

    My subjective taste is the one i can use to say this genre is bigger than life for me. Bt apparently , some of the metal experts think that's no real metal applying arguments about how ''pop'' ''cheesy'' , ''girly'' some of this bands are etc ..Anywhre if this were true , so what? Wow you're so edgy , so antisystem , i'm impressed. You guys take the tags so seriously , it doesnt really mean that are purely symphonic , maybe has more to do with the fact that the bands were thinking in classical/operatic music when they were doing the tunes.
